Applegate House

At Merriam Boarding School, Applegate House is the Outcast House, the one house that has never won the school's Point Game. Maybe this year will change that. {8 OPEN SPOTS}

Introduction

Image
Image
Welcome to Merriam Boarding School, located in the small town of Venice, Maine. Merriam is a school well-known for its academics as well as its athletics and arts. In general, Merriam is rated as one of the top schools in the country. Although the majority of the school's populace is in the upper class, there are many scholarship students, with scholarships for academics, the arts, and athletics.

Like many boarding schools, Merriam is divided into separate houses. These houses are well-known for their rivalries against each other. Each of the houses are given Points based off of the residents' achievements throughout the year. The house with the most Points at the end of the year is given an all expense paid trip to the Bahamas as well as guaranteed the best dorms the next year, complete with everything a teenager could want.
However, there is one house that hasn't ever won the Point Game. The house's official name is the Applegate House, but it is often called the Outcast House. Who knows, though? This might be the year they win the Point Game.




Image
Image
Built in 1791, the Applegate House is one of the oldest houses in Venice, Maine. It was constructed by the Applegate family, who later donated it to Merriam Boarding School near the end of World War Two.

Like all houses at Merriam, Applegate House consists of ten dorms, containing a total of twenty students: ten females and ten males. It is the farthest house from the school's main building, making it difficult for students to make it to class on time. Many residents own bicycles or skateboards to help them get to the school faster.

Each dorm room in Applegate House has two beds, two wardrobes, and two desks. Students may decorate their rooms as they wish, including painting the walls and putting down rugs. Students are not permitted to use wallpaper or carpet unless they remove it by the end of their senior year. Cleanliness Checks are conducted in a biweekly basis and without warning. The house with the cleanest building is given 45 extra points. Each house that is up to code is given 20 points. Any houses under code will lose 10 points.



Image
The school uniforms are required. Previous winning houses are allowed to alter their uniforms. Any other house resident found with an altered uniform will be reprimanded and told to change, as well as cost their house 5 points. Any socks, stockings, or tights are allowed as long as they do not contain holes or vulgarity, this applies to ties and bow ties as well. Black, brown, or white shoes are required, but it doesn't not matter what style of shoe they are. Boys may have one button undone on their shirt, but girls must be buttoned up all the way. Girls are required to wear skirts at all times, with the exception of any physical activity. During Physical Education, any PE activity, or sport, students are required to wear the school-issued track clothes.

Re: Applegate House

Hi!
If she is still available. her who has no name

Name|Age|Female|Freshman|Dorm 1|Madison Pettis|OPEN...
Please and thanks. Do I need to look back here to know if it is reserved?

Re: Applegate House

I believe my character has been completed and sent in. If anything needs to be changed Wisteria, just let me know.

Re: Applegate House

Sorry my WIP isn't in yet... It's been a super busy week and this is the only chance I've had to even get something in. I'll complete it over the weekend sometime.

Re: Applegate House

Can I reserve Logan Lerman too?
Image

Re: Applegate House

May I reserve Lily Cole?

Image

Re: Applegate House

@BleedingLover, yep!

Re: Applegate House

May I change my face claim from Natalie to Logan Browning please?

Image

Re: Applegate House

@GreenPegg, you are reserved!

Re: Applegate House

Hi. Really awesome work you all have done here. I was wondering if I could please reserve FC: Logan Lerman?

Image

And his favorite color would be Ultramarine (hexcode #110C8E).

Mei

Re: Applegate House

I already sent my character! :)

Re: Applegate House

@Blaire, the only problem I have with it is that Merriam is a very advanced school. It would be strange for them to let a held back student into their school, even if they had a lot of money.

Re: Applegate House

Whoops, please can I reserve Lily Cole's character but change the FC to Kaya? Would it also be possible that she's been held back a year so she 16...

Re: Applegate House

Okay @Wisteria, thank you for clearing that up. :-) I'll have a WIP up soon.

Re: Applegate House

Could I reserve Madison Pettis?

Her favorite color would be purple.

Re: Applegate House

I have no problem with there being Horseback Riding Competitions, but it's listed as an elective. If people want to do it competitively, they'll have to sign up.

Re: Applegate House

Ooh, could I make a small suggestion/ask a question?
There is horse riding listed in the free time section, but what occured to me was that there are lots of riding competitions as well. Do you think you could incorporate this into the roleplay or would that be included in the club even though it is competitive? :-)

Also thank you for letting me reserve FC: Elle Fanning.

Re: Applegate House

You're all reserved, but the Liana Liberato character is already reserved, Blaire.

Re: Applegate House

Please can I also reserve Josh Hutchersons Dorm 7 but change the FC to Thomas Mcdonnald. His favorite colour would be Light blue.
